About the property

one bedroom,oceanfront,full kitchen,sleeps 4,oversized balcony/sundeck



If you are looking for a great place to take the family or to hang out for an adult’s only vacation, the Caravelle Resort has everything you could want. Located on the Golden Mile, the Caravelle is situated away from the hustle and bustle commonly found in beach resort towns. But, all that excitement is still only just minutes away.

My family has fallen in love with Myrtle Beach. The beach is nice and calm with no strong currents. Still, there is enough wave action to keep the teenagers entertained. Spend your mornings looking for shells, your days catching a tan or swimming and your nights in a spacious ocean front unit with all the amenities of home.

#511 is a true one bedroom room unit directly on the ocean. The unit is on the southern end of the building with a nice balcony and commanding views of the ocean. One of the amazing things about 511 is the size of the balcony. This balcony is over 160 square feet. As you can see from the floor plan in the pictures, there is a separate bedroom with a king bed and a double wall bed in the living room. The nice thing is that the living room and bedroom both have doors to close them off from the hallway. This affords privacy to both sleeping areas. So, the adults can stay up late while the kids are tucked snug in bed.

There is a fully stocked kitchen with anything and everything you could need. Pots and Pans, utensils of every kind and shape, small appliances to numerous to mention but a listing is provided below. A full size refrigerator and stove with oven combine with the microwave to allow you the fully gambit of cooking possibilities. If cooking is not you idea of fun, then there many options from the onsite Santa Maria restaurant, to food delivered in by a full range of restaurants. Liquids, the on site Martini and Coffee bar, serves drinks and munchies till the wee hours of the night. For those of you with energy left over after a long day on the beach, Outback is within walking distances and dozens of other restaurants are a short drive away.

Parking is not a problem with a six floor parking garage attached to the resort with an overflow garage with another six floors of parking just across the street. Since the unit is on the fifth floor and the attached parking garage goes to the sixth floor, you can park on the same floor as your unit so you do not have to worry about elevators.

The balcony is high enough off the beach to allow plenty of privacy but close enough so that you can keep your eyes on the kids. Plus, since this is the end unit-you also can watch the pool area from the 6th floor as well.

The pool area includes a full size pool, a full size lazy river & a small kid’s lazy river, a kid’s splash zone and hot tub. Memorial Day to Labor Day, do not miss out on a trip to the Marco Polo pool bar for great frozen drinks and bar food. If you need something to cool you down, why not a trip to the ice cream shop next to the pool which also has pizza and kids food. There is also a small sundries store by the pool to fill that last minute need.

On the seventh floor, here is an additional hot tub along with an indoor pool. Oceanfront on the seventh floor is a huge sun deck with chairs, tables, loungers and hammocks for your enjoyment.

After a hot day on the beach, relax with a cool shower and a calm night watching movies or playing games. There is a flat screen with DVD player in the living room as well as the bedroom with a large selection of dvds in the living room. There is also a selection of board games for the family along puzzles for the more ambitious among us. For the intellectuals, there is a wide selection of reading material to help you pass the time plus some kids books for bed time stories

There is a fitness center on site to work off that extra vacation excitement and a coin laundry.

Superb amenities, thoughtful owners, beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

Traveled with my wife and our 9 year old son. We all agree that this unit had everything we needed for a great week away.

Love the fact that the owners stocked the unit with useful items for different occasions including beach gear for sunny days, board games/books/movies for rainy days, full dishware set for eating in, and more.

The sundeck is amazing. So much space to sit and reflect and enjoy the sun.

We loved being right on the water, and so close to the outdoor pool.

The resort staff was very friendly. Our paths crossed in the hallways, at the pool, and at the ice cream shop.

We only had 2 issues, and overall in the Grand scheme of things, they are minor. 1) the room smelled musty upon first entering. But once we saw the view and the room's offerings, those things overshadowed the smell. After an hour of having the AC on, the smell eventually diminished. 2) the master bed is very bouncy/floppy. It was certainly comfortable once we got settled, but it felt like a small trampoline when we first got in.

Overall, we were delighted with the unit and had a wonderful time of relaxation and rejuvenation on the beach. This unit is great for young families!

Great vacation! Will be back

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as described, and it was perfect for what we needed! Loved the separate rooms for sleeping. Most of all, we loved the HUGE balcony! It was perfect to lay out on while my kids took a nap. Arrival couldn't have gone better because we could park on same level and go right to condo where key was waiting inside lockbox. No waiting to check in. We will be back!

Bike week 2015

  • 5 of 5

My stay was awesome. I was amazed at how big the balcony was. With a balcony like that I didn't need to go out on the beach. The balcony had 2 chairs, a small table, a octagon shaped picnic table and a lounge chair. It was a great ocean view. What more could a girl ask for besides a butler for the weekend. I really enjoyed my stay. I definitely will be coming back.

The deck on this place and the location are incredible! It is simple and yet perfect! The beach is awesome. The deck and the deck - did I mention the deck! I fell asleep on that deck in awe of the view the silence except for the ocean! Book it soon because I promise you I will!

Good times on the beach.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was just as pictured and described. Seems to be well maintained and was very clean upon arrival. Plenty of clean towels and mattress was comfortable. The bedroom is bigger than it appears in photo and is very nice. Wasn't crazy about the sheets but just a personal preference.

The unit had a musty smell but really didn't bother us. Although the huge balcony is nice, we found it was a landing pad from things above...cigarette ashes, food bits, and even a beach towel!

The resort itself is really not much to write home about. The pool area was packed with young kids and families pretty much all day. My 14 year old didn't want to go near the pool area. Same with indoor pool..very small. So if you are a family with older kids or no kids and enjoy lounging by a pool, this is not the place for you. There is a nice pool at st. John's but not heated.

If you feel like take out... Walk on the Beach is close and has great Chinese-Thai food!

Beautiful winter retreat

  • 5 of 5

The condo is perfect for a quiet winter stay. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets with a spectacular view from the large balcony. Front row views of the ocean. The indoor pool and hot tubs were perfect for a winter time stay. I've been coming back to this condo for a number of years now and if I return again, it will be my first choice!
